Summary
"A pioneering force in the feminist art movement of the 1970s, Miriam Schapiro (b. 1923) dared to challenge the marginalized role of women in the art world by creating a visual vocabulary to express women's experiences. In this illustrated book, the first comprehensive monograph on the artist, acclaimed art historian Thalia Gouma-Peterson traces the trajectory of Schapiro's career over five decades, from her gestural canvases of the 1950s, to her self-exploratory "Shrines" and geometric abstractions of the 1960s, to her large-scale femmages (feminist-oriented collages of paint and fabric) of the 1970s and 1980s, and finally to her autobiographical figural compositions of the 1980s and 1990s."--Jacket
